"When our customers bring their cars back here to Aston Martin Works, it's like the cars are coming home. Many of the cars were built here at the Newport Pagnell facility."
CLIVE WILSON, HERITAGE OPERATIONS MANAGER
Our unique heritage services are, in some cases, delivered by the same craftsmen and women using the very same artisan skills and original tools employed to build the cars themselves.
No job is too small or too large. From sourcing a single nut or bolt to a comprehensive bespoke restoration we will greet your enquiry with the same passion and enthusiasm that has become the hallmark of Aston Martin Works.
Driven by some of the greatest names in motor sport, including Peter Collins, Stirling Moss and Graham Hill, this extremely rare Aston Martin DB3S recorded victories at Silverstone, Seebring (USA) and Goodwood.
DB3S #5 won several international sports car races in the 1950s
A thorough inspection revealed the need for a complete chassis, body and mechanical re-build.
Tooling was re-created to enable new chassis tubes to be produced then aligned to millimetre accuracy on Aston Martin Works' global jig system.
An entire new aluminium body was hand-made to the original specification.
The brakes and many suspension components were re-manufactured to the original specification.
A new cylinder block and head were cast and triple 45DCOE Magnesium Carburettors hand made.
The original dashboard with its Jaeger Le Coutre dials was restored and an additional panel fitted to add trip, fuel and speed gauges. A special tonneau cover was also hand-built for 'one-up' driving.
After more than 4500 'man' hours the car takes to the Goodwood race track for final testing before taking part in the 2014 Mille Miglia.
The totally restored Aston Martin DB3S returned to and completed the Mille Miglia race re-enactment in May 2014 - something of a home-coming for a car that twice competed in the original race
DB3S, Chassis #5 of 11, was returned to Aston Martin Works by its Swiss owner in 2011 with its engine and many components boxed or missing. Following a thorough assessment, a restoration schedule was agreed with the objective that the car be ready to enter the Mille Miglia endurance race re-enactment event in Italy in 2014 - something of a home-coming for a car that twice competed in the original race.
The car was in a poor state, having been subjected to many sub-standard repairs and ill-conceived modifications. Its chassis was cracked, the original body had been replaced with a poor and worn out substitute, the engine required a new cylinder block and head casting and many more mechanical components were in need of replacing.
Most of the tooling for such a rare car no longer existed, so the Aston Martin Works heritage specialists recreated them. Over 4500 ‘man’ hours then went into crafting and fitting an all-new hand-made aluminium body, new chassis tubes, floor panels, braking system, clutch, hand-made triple DCOE magnesium carburettors, flywheel and seat frames as well as overhauling the gear box, final drive, steering and suspension. The car was completely re-wired and even the paint was carefully researched and manufactured to order, in time for the totally top-to-toe restored Aston Martin DB3S to return to and complete the Mille Miglia in May 2014.
Imagine your classic Aston Martin completely dismantled; every individual component carefully logged and expertly and meticulously assessed.
